NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has spotted an unusual symbol on the surface of Mars — the iconic "Star Trek" Starfleet logo. The MRO captured a series of strange chevron symbols on a Martian sand dune in the southeast Hellas Planitia region.

The MRO HiRISE (High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) camera team at the University of Arizona highlighted the discovery Wednesday, though the image was acquired by the team April 22.

"Enterprising viewers will make the discovery that these features look conspicuously like a famous logo," the camera team behind the MRO HiRise image said.

This Mars helicopter will image the Red Planet from the skies NASA put the finishing touches on its interplanetary drone, which will take off from the surface of Mars equipped with a high-resolution camera. The cam will showcase the potential of aerial examination in Mars' atmosphere, rather than search for aliens lurking in any unseen dark areas of Mars. But with a new solar panel and a couple more tests under its belt, is NASA now ready to get to the chopper? Not quite.

According to the team, the shapes on the red planet were created by wind, lava and dunes. They began as large, crescent-shaped dunes that were surrounded by lava after an eruption before solidifying. As wind blew over the dunes, it displaced much of the sand, and eventually left behind "footprints," also called "dune casts," that record the presence of dunes that were surrounded by lava.

The MRO has been exploring Mars from orbit since 2006, capturing some of the most detailed images of its surface. Hopefully, it finds some aliens sporting Vulcan salutes next.

NASA set up a webcam so you can watch them build the Mars 2020 rover NASA's mission to Mars in 2020 is a very, very big deal. After the death of Opportunity a number of months back, NASA has just one rover left on the Red Planet and Curiosity isn't exactly a spring chicken.

It looks like Starfleet is literally embedded on the planet next door: A dune in the shape of the famous logo from “ Star Trek ” appears prominently in a Just like the famous “face on Mars ,” this Starfleet logo was produced by random chance, as wind, lava and other forces sculpted the Martian landscape.

The Curiosity rover found a massive spike in methane that could point to life on Mars.
NASA's Curiosity rover discovered high amounts of methane in the air on Mars, indicating signs of life on the planet. Methane is typically just produced by living things. Business Insider has reached out to NASA for comment. This isn't the first time that scientists have found methane on Mars: In 2004, scientists reported the discovery of methane in the air, following three year's of observations. "We are 99 per cent confident," Dr. Michael Mumma, a senior scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, told The Times following that news. "It surprised all of us, actually.
